Has a very high correlation with the exact time the government clamped down on amphetamines whi h used to be prescribed for more reasons than any other drug. Also an extreme increase in the presciptions for new(patent- protected) and EXPENSIVE anti-depressants. Speed is nOt only more effective than all the new ones but costs pennies for a months supply. This was also about the time big -Pharma lobby got to washigton, the drug war began, and America started losing the productivity and thought capacity that Ayn Rand, and so many others , myself included, used amphetamines to bolster.
Give us fat asses or give us Meth! You decide what epidemic was more heinous , the housewife's who couldn't clean enough, or welfare fatties that can't eat enough (or find the motivation to get a job).
And if you give me ... Weed , Whites , and Wine,
And you show me a si-ign,
I'll be WILLIN'
To be movin'
I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility to every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
